Milanote is a web-based tool that enables you to organize all of your ideas and projects onto visual boards. You can create moodboards, brainstorm ideas with visuals, sticky notes, plan your calendar, and loads more.
The company is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.
You can moodboards, brainstorm ideas, jot down notes, visually plan projects, create storyboards, plan out mind maps… and visually arrange just about anything that involves various digital materials.
It’s also just a really handy tool for anyone that is a little disorganized and has sticky notes or bits of paper with important bits of information all over their desks.
Milanote gives you a digital place to store, arrange, and work with all your notes and images. This way, if you’re disorganized you’ll never lose any important information. For creatives, it makes arranging boards and other visuals quick and easy.
How Milanote Works
To get started with Milanote, you need to either log in with your Google account or sign up via email.
Once you have an account, you can log in and start using the web app on your desktop, download their mobile app, and install their web clipper extension.
You’re presented with a blank canvas/board when you first log in. But don’t worry, it’s super easy to get started. Most elements are drag-and-drop, and Milanote provides loads of templates to help you get started.
There is a wide range of different boards you can create. Once you select the type of board you want to create, Milanote does a great job of guiding you through building out a smooth, professional-looking board.
Once you’ve finished a board, or even if you haven’t, you can publish it for anyone to see. You can also share your work with others and give them access to make changes and collaborate with you.
Milanote is used to create a wide range of creative boards, the main ones are:
- Visual note taking
- Design collaboration
- Creative briefs
- Mind mapping
- Project management
You can create boards on your own, or by collaborating with others.
Milanote Plans and Pricing
Milanote has a fairly generous free plan, and three monthly paid plans based on how many users you want.
Their pricing plans at the time of publishing were:
- Free – You can use up to 100 notes, images, or links, 10 file uploads, and unlimited shared boards.
- $9.99 per mo – This is a license for one person, and enables unlimited notes, images, links, and file uploads.
- $49 per mo – This enables up to 10 user accounts with full access to all features.
- $99 per mo – This enables up to 50 user accounts with full access to all features.
There aren’t a lot of creative tools that do as much as Milanote does, and in a similar way. Evernote is one of the best tools for arranging ideas, so I recommend checking it out if that’s your goal.
For team collaborations, I recommend checking out Monday.com, which is a project management-based tool.
